The unfortunate lifestyle of our young ones in higher institutions
It has been observed that many of the children sent to the higher institutions to study are now living bigger than their parents and guardian.
Some are even staying permanently in hotels, where they pay large sums of money for their upkeep, while getting involved in the act of defrauding people, in what is popularly described as Yahoo-Yahoo in the local slang.
In fact, many of them are not really studying or going to class for any lectures. They are simply in the habit of sorting and bribing their way to pass.
This kind of students often come into the campus with convoys to show off as they move around with the type of expensive cars which even their parents cannot afford and unfortunately some of the lecturers are worshipping them.
These teenage children are only interested in being recognized as the latest boys in campus.
The houses they live in the university are now flats and duplexes as against the self-contained we used to know. Well furnished and more beautiful compared to the rooms of some prominent people in the society.
The amazing thing is that many of them are all married in the university but single at home. Girls crawl around them… living with them, cooking for them, doing all sorts of things with them.
These girls are also our daughters whom we sent to the university to study. They are in every club and hotels. In fact, you find this type of female students in every front car, fastening seatbelt.
You can imagine my recent research in the Nigerian universities, which opened my eyes to the recent ugly reality.
I weep for the future of these teenagers, who are not even at their adult stage of their lives.
Guess what? We still see them as children who know nothing.
They are not only living in hotels for months, they are also not going to school.
Those boys and girls are abusing drugs of all kinds like cocaine and tramadols. I have once boarded a vehicle with a young girl, who is a university student; she had some crack (cocaine) in her purse.
When the police stopped to check our vehicle, she was not searched like all of us, may be due to her beauty and innocent looking nature.

On the way, she brought out cocaine, gently fixed some into her nose and threw the little remaining substance through the window.
After that act, I remained deaf and dumb until I got to my destination and paused.
Who will save this generation of children who unfortunately are our leaders of tomorrow?
